Half of patients may not need an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction; however, we need strategies to identify these people. Patients who undergo early ACL reconstruction may report slightly better outcomes at certain time points. However, an early ACL reconstruction is not cost-effective, and people who succeed with conservative care may have the best outcomes.
The Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy of the American Physical Therapy Association released revised clinical practice guidelines for lateral ankle ligament sprains.
A group of experts from Europe, North America, and Australasia developed a consensus statement regarding the prevalence of rowing-related low back pain compared with other sports and the general population. They also discussed how to prevent and manage rowing-related low back pain. The authors provide a summary box that lists the risk factors associated with rowing-related low back pain. The manuscript includes a figure to highlight key assessments and management strategies from the time of initial evaluation to full return to sport.
